[RESOLVED] Theme not working in Internet Explorer

    I’m sorry to start a new thread, but my old one was closed, and I really wanted to let people know this had been resolved – in case others had a similar issue and so that maybe it can be fixed in another version?

    I was having trouble with my site being “viewable” by older versions of IE. The original topic is here.

    I spoke to a really nice guy named Jeff Musal (jeff@upstatewebdevelopment.com), who does WP work, and who found that there was an opened and unclosed span tag in the file loop-page.php.

    Specifically,

    <span class="updated">
    <span class="value-title" title="<?php the_time( 'Y-m-dTH:i' ); ?>" />
    </span>

    Should be:

    <span class="updated">
    <span class="value-title" title="<?php the_time( 'Y-m-dTH:i' ); ?>" />
    </span></span>

    (Hope that formatting works!)

    Anyhow, when I add that second </span> it fixes my Internet Explorer errors.

    I’m new here

    Is there a section for ‘must have’ includes?

    Self closing span tag is valid in XHTML 1.0 Strict doctype.

    I don’t doubt that, I’m sure that’s why the site worked fine in Chrome and Firefox. I’m just saying, it fixed my particular problem in IE. Take what you will from that.

    Hi,

    I seem to have the same issues in IE 8 and below (so far tested) and found that If I switch back to the Graphene Parent theme, I don’t have an issue with the menus displaying incorrectly in certain pages. I added the “Span” code from makphisto’s post and it resolves the issue.

    Problem is, I use a child theme and need to this to be fixed there. So my question is, where can I place the “span” code from his post so that I can resume using my child theme?

    Thx in advance.

    Discussed here

    https://forum.graphene-theme.com/bug-report/ie8-updates

    It says you can add a child loop.php with the extra span

    howeber I edited the main graphene loop.php as I was worried that if there was an update it might need to update loop.php

    If it does I’ll check loop.php again for the second span

    Yeah that didn’t seem to fix the issue. I copied loop.php (which doesn’t contain any unclosed “span” commands) to my child theme and it still occurs. I even copied the loop-page.php (which does contain the unclosed “span” command), added the closing span command and it still doesn’t work.

    I also tried the webfonts trick in all sorts of iterations and that doesn’t fix it.

    Back to the parent theme….
